presidential campaign be like? brad bliekl blakely smiling on e right. you worked for president george w. bush. brad, how much does he have to win by in november to potentially send a national message? what do you think? >> if you look at the polls as you suggested, eric, he will win handily because he's delivered. don't forget. new jersey is a blue state. he's a republican governor in a democratic state. he has to face a democratically-controlled senate. look at what he's been able to do showing bi-partisanship, balanced budget, creating jobs, taking on the teachers union. his leadership before, during, and after superstorm sandy, so his leadership is his greatest strength. that's why you see his poll numbers so good even beyond his state, so i think he'll win handily unless something unforeseen happens in november. that sets him up to be certainly the frontrunner as we start talking even now about 20 60s d the presentation rate. >> eric: he's got a feud going on with rand paul and some in the republican party he's alienated. >> the republican party isn't homogeneous. we have a lot of differ
and win the republican nomination was george bush. >> in 2000. >> you you were probably not even out of high school at the time. >> that's very kind. >> so why the continued rush on iowa? >> at least for the republican side, it doesn't predict victory in the white house but there is p.r. value. there is political value. there's some cache there. just ask rick santorum and michele bachmann. and michele bachmann's campaign was flailing until she'll won that straw pole. it can breathe new life into a struggling campaign. now, it's up to them to do with that what they will and make a go of it, but iowa is still important politically and p.r. wise. >> and all the speculation on hillary clinton who came in third in 2008, she has not visited any of these early states. what's going on here? >> a, she doesn't have to because she's a huge, huge front-runner. she hasn't even signalled she's going to do it. but i think it's very interesting. you look at that display of all of those republican leaders and you don't see one of them, as best i can tell, who inspires a lot of confidence they can bec
